Introduction to the 7 Day Film Course

What does it take to Make a Low or Micro-Budget Short or Feature Film that gets seen by a Worldwide Audience.  

  1. Knowledge 
  2. Mentorship 
  3. Deadline 
  4. Just do it. 

This Course will clearly outline to you what is involved in Making a  Film  The  Course goal is that you will know what steps you need to take to start Your Film Production or/and Film Career, as soon as this course is over.   

At the End of this short online film course, you will have your roadmap clearly marked out and your strategy in place to Make Your Own Film that gets into Film Festivals and Gets Seen Online Around the World.

You can make your Film Now.  

It is only a matter of committing to making the film.  The very first thing to do is set a Deadline for your Shoot. 

When are you going to Shoot your Film?  We recommend maximum three months from Day One from creating the idea to shooting a 10 Minute Short Film. Notice I stress shooting. Not completing. It will take another three months to post-produce your film.

This is exactly the period we take to prepare and make a 3 Day Shoot happen on our Practical Hands On 4 Month Filmmaking Course in Sydney and Melbourne.

For A Micro Budget Feature 90 minute Film it should be a maximum of Six Months from Day one (creation of Idea) to  First Day of Shooting.  

Anything else is Procrastination.  Once the shoot is over, a further 2.5 months on Post Production for Short Film and 6- 9 Months For a Feature Film is the maximum amount of time needed. 

The above schedule is for Quality and is not a Speedo Gonzales approach. When we make our own feature films , it is a meticulous and fastidious approach that pays off with a great film 

This course will show you how you could make a film and what you need to do to make it.

At the end of the Seven Sessions course, you can decide what you want to do in terms of achieving your goal.

This Course is to help potential emerging  or experienced Filmmakers or Beginners overview the work involved in Making a Film and decide on the action steps needed to get there. 

Please note that we will send one LESSON PER DAY for the next seven days.  It will take about 15 -20 minutes of your time/per day

Do one lesson daily and you will learn a great deal over the next week.

Whether you are making your First Short Film or your First Feature Film or if you already are an experienced filmmaker making another film, this short seven day Film Course will show you the Road Map and what you will need to do.

Look at Trailer below for our most recent Feature Film from our production company International Film Base – Tabernacle 101

Tabernacle 101 has won Ten Best Film Awards and being selected in 24 International  Film Festivals. Getting into Film Festivals itself takes an effort. Most Film Festivals have at least 1000 -2000 entries and they usually have 50 – 100 slots to show movies. 

The Film has a highly sought after Distributor in Los Angeles who has us on Major Streamers in the US such as Prime Video , Google Pay and Roku. We are also are distributed on DVD Blue Ray in major American Stores.  Please see Trailer now 

Aim Big and see where you end up. It will be much further than if you Aim Small.

You can make your film and build a film career, provided you have the following: 

    • Mindset to Make a Film —>  Now over the next Four Months.
      You need to have a clear and present goal that you want to achieve.
    • Mentorship —-> You will need mentorship from experienced filmmakers. Otherwise, you will end up lost. You can find a very successful filmmaker and ask them for advise.

    • Or even better you can join the Flagship Sydney Four Month Filmmaking Course, whose sole goal is to guide you from the beginning with a Story Idea to a completed Ten Minute Film. You actually work on a Ten Minute Short Film for Real as part of the 4 Month Film Course and you can keep your day job.    

The Eight Pillars of Every Completed Film is as follows.

Screenplay:  Create and Write Your Screenplay

  1. Cast:  Organise a Casting and Cast the best actors available.  
  2. Crew:    Find the best available Crew 
  3. Locations:  Source the best Locations and Make them look Great. 
  4. Film Equipment; Buy or Rent Film equipment for your Shoot

  6. Post Production:  – Editing – Colouring – Sound Track – Music Titles
  7. Audience:  Get officially selected in Film Festivals Win Best Film Awards and get Distributed worldwide attracting a huge audience.

Our Flashp  Sydney Four Month Course teaches the above in detail. On the in-person film course in Sydney or Melbourne, we teach filmmaking via actually making a film on the 4 Month Film Course.
